Can’t believe it’s whole grain flour you sent me, the fermentation is amazing. This flour is a stunner.

Great for hot cross buns

I bought TAM 105 to make hot cross buns. The enriched dough rose very well - first rising for about 3 hours, kneaded in mixed peel and diced apple for the second rise, formed the buns and let rise a third time. They are beautifully soft, tender and delicious.
